Video Transcript for Curt 5th Wheel Hitch Adapter Rails Installation - 2016 Ram 3500

Today on this 2016 Ram 3500, we're going to show you the adapter rails for the Curt 5th Wheel Hitch with slider options for your Ram towing prep package. We're also going to to show you how it installs. This is going to be part number C16022. The Curt 5th wheel adapter is specifically designed for your Ram 3500's under bed tow prep package. It can be easily installed and removed and you can use both your regular 5th wheel hitches, as well as your slider hitches. When it comes to your slider hitches, we recommend you use those for 6 and a half foot beds which will help compensate for the reduced turning clearance.

They're installed and removed by opening up these latches here and are locked into place using these snap pins. Once they're open like that, they're ready to be lifted up. They're closed just as easily. This has a weight capacity of 24,000 pounds. Once its installed, it's going to stand about 3/4 inches tall in your truck bed. Now that we've going over some of the features, lets show you how this installs.

As we've stated before, this is for the Ram tow prepping package. We're going to go ahead and start by opening up all of our ports here to set our adapter in. You just twist on them and life up. You'll do this for all 4 points. Once you have all those removed, we'll go ahead and set these inside the vehicle and we'll go ahead and set our adapter in place.

Before we set our adapter into the rails, we've got to actually open up the feed so they can be set inside. To do that, we'll have to remove this snap pin here and open up like so. We'll be doing this on all of them. I also like to point out the entry points actually have different sizes so the wider ones get put in the back while the slimmer ones get put towards the front. With an extra set of hands we'll go ahead and set this inside the truck bed system. Slip it up, line them up, set them in place and then we'll go ahead and lock them down.

If these aren't fitting in exactly how you need them to, the feet themselves can be adjusted. What you do is you pull the cotter pin here, you loosen it a quarter turn until these can actually shut all the way and lock into place. Once they can shut and lock into place, you reinstall the cotter. Now we're ready for our 5th wheel hitch. Now that we have our 5th wheel hitch in place, we'll go ahead and secure it with our provided half inch pins with our adapter. You can also us e the pins that come with your actual 5th wheel hitch as well. It's your choice. That'll do it for the adapter rails for the Curt 5th Wheel Hitch with slider, Ram towing prep package addition, part number C16022 on our 2016 Ram 3500.

Looks great, Easy installation, Good quality. I had a problem with ups losing one part and etrailer sent out another one. All the staff that I spoke with was great.

I love the way it sits and fits in my truck. The instructions and installation were very clear and easy to follow and assemble. And there is still room to have my tool box’s and a chain between the 5th wheel and my tailgate. My tank cover fits perfectly over the top and my support bars don’t touch the 5th wheel either. I am very happy with this 5th wheel.It works just like all the descriptions said it would. It will make pulling our camper a breeze. I would recommend this hitch very highly. And will be recommending all my friends to this company for all future hitches.

Great hitch but even better service and shipping. Thanks for getting this to me in such a short time frame!

Great customer service and quick shipping. Showed up 5 days Early.

The product arrived 1 day earlier than promised. The instructions were decent, they could of been more inclusive of the different setups, the hitch and sliders didn’t reference how to interface with the Ram puck base. The rubber gaskets for the slider base didn’t fit with the Ram base due to their thickness. You need a 100lbs torque wrench(I rented one from Orielys). All the parts were present. The bad may not of been etrailers fault, but the boxes arrived like they were dropped out of an airplane. Amazingly, nothing was damaged.

Straightforward setup. I’d recommend deep sockets for torquing the bolts down. Solid piece of equipment.

I bought a 5th Wheel camper on May 13th. On the 14 I started shopping for a 5th Wheel Hitch. I landed on etrailer’s site. I found what I wanted in no time. When I went to check out it said I should have the unit it 3 days. Which would be Friday. I needed to pick up my Camper on Monday. I called because I wanted to be sure it would deliver on Friday. They assured me I would have it Friday. I placed my order at 11am and by 3 pm I had an email saying the Hitch had shipped. To my surprise it arrived on Thursday. I’m very mechanically inclined and it took me about 2 hours to put the Hitch in my 2017 Ram 2500 with the in bed puck system. I did have to remove my bed liner which I will put back in at a later date. The installation went pretty smooth. I found it helpful to watch the videos on the installation. I picked up my camper on Monday and drove 100 miles home. So far so good. It’s going on 600 mile journey over the Memorial Day Weekend. I was very impressed with the customer service when I called and the very quick free shipping. Great Job etrailer.

Fit perfect and got to me fast! Just a few bolts then dropped it in. Very easy to take out when I need the bed.with the hitch it is a bit heavy to remove but way I can have a full bed anytime I want



- C16022

The adapter rails fit perfectly, lock in place securely, and make removing the hitch easy. The only problem with them is how they raise the fifth wheel hitch height. My 3500 RAM is stock, the Curt hitch is bolted in the lowest position in the slider assembly, and the fifth wheel (RV) rides a little nose high. The clearance to the bed rails is about 9 inches.

Easiest item I have ever installed on my truck. 4 bolts to set it up then dropped the entire assembly into the Ramming bed puck system. Plan to haul our 5th wheel rv with this. The slider will help if we get into tight area at the rv park. Simly to use. Love it

Like most customers the box was in really bad shape when it arrived. Everything was still together and not damaged. Received 2 of 3 boxes, contacted customer service since I needed the rail system for the rest of the assembly to mount on and they promised the rails would arrive the next day. I'm trusting they will get here. The Curt fifth wheel slider hitch is built substantially well and is impressive, cannot wait to hook up!

Installation is a breeze. 4 short bolts and 4 longer bolts. Instructions show a picture of the pieces but no step by step because, well...there's 8 bolts and if you can't see in the picture how it goes, hire someone who can. Seriously...it took me the better part of 30 minutes to assemble. Once assembled with loose fitting bolts I placed the assembly into the pucks in my truck. three of the pucks went right into the holes but the forth was off by 1/8 inch. I was able to tap it with a large ball peen hammer to get it to go in. I tightened all the bolts and adjusted the retainer nuts (with the cotter pins removed). I still have to use the ball peen hammer to get that 4th puck to force into place. I know the Reese setup has adjustments for the four pucks...why Curt chose not to have those adjustments I don't know. The good news is I am able to use the hitch...I just wish it fit better. The system seems well built and very heavy duty. I will not worry about the system failing while dragging my 18,000 lb trailer.

Great products, excellent price, speedy (3 day) delivery and easy step by step installation instructions for my sliding fifth wheel hitch for my 2016 Ram 2500 short bed truck w/ factory tow prep package. I would highly recommend any of these products as well as the excellent customer service at etrailer.com

Purchased and installed adapter rails for my Curt 5th wheel hitch. These adapter rails are rated for 24,000 lbs., and are "beefy". I could not be more pleased with the ease of installation and overall heavy duty construction of these adapter rails.



- C16022
by:

I haven’t used the hitch yet but it went together fairly easy. It heavy but seems to be built well. The only issue I have is that I couldn’t get the supplied rubber pads installed. They seem to be a bit to thick so I’m going to drive around a week or so without a trailer and try getting them in after some wear. But all and all seems like a quality hitch. This was the first time I’ve had one and I got it installed with the slider in about 90 minutes.

Good product the only thing is that it is very hard to move the release handle. There should be an extension to make the handle longer.

Product went on easily and looks great! Didn't even need to use the instructions really. Only complaint I had is with the shipping. It looks like the box was tossed from the truck of the shipper and between all the shipping hubs the box got trashed because of the heaviness of the product. I'd suggest a better means of securing the product in a heavier duty box as any shipping company won't Handle with care. Overall very satisfied!

Great rails but our hitch will not fit on there. We need hitch info

Great fitment and easy to install. All the components are will built. etrailer had the lowest price! Shipping was quick with a great tracking email. The packages are heavy so I was a little concerned about them being damaged in transit, but etrailer did a nice job of extra packaging to ensure no issues. I would purchase from them again!
